Title: Bachmann class 20 deisel
Post by: Lurcher1 on September 21, 2017, 03:20:19 AM
I've just purchased this loco from Rails Of Sheffield, it takes a 21 pin decoder, can I use any decoder, been looking at one from Hattons, that looks a good price.

I'm lost there appears to be adaptors to convert a 21 pin to an eight, do any of you know which would be best for this Bachmann class 20 deisel?

Lurcher 1 :   This forum  usually deals with North American  equipment .   I suspect you are going to have to  look in Bachmanns  British Equipment website for  information  .  I assume you are dealing with Canadian equipment .  John2.

And since when is Canadian equipment not North American?

Google is your friend JH2.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_20 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_20)

Lurcher.........if you're not looking for sound, any basic decoder will work along with whatever adapter is needed to connect the 21 pin to the loco.

The decoder you were looking at, i presume this one?

Should do the trick.
That you Brits drive on the wrong side of the road does not mean your decoders are the other way around. ;D
As long as your decoder is NMRA compliant it doesn't matter what part of the world you are from.

to Wounded Bear :     Every country north of Panama  is part of  North America .   Since he bought the train from "Rails of Sheffield " I made the assumption that he was  dealing with a  supplier in Canada  who deals in British  type trains since  Canada uses the same type of electrical power   60 Hz  , 120  Vac. .Though  I do use Google  Chrome  I normally use AOL . as my search engine .    Since the gentleman was getting no response  from the forum I suggested he look at Bachmann's  British equipment.   John2.
